Pre-fight coverage, undercard rundown, and more after the jump.

Canelo (40-0-1, 29 KO) is the heavy favorite tonight against the upset-minded Lopez (30-4, 18 KO), and all six of the BLH staffers who made a pick for the fight have chosen Alvarez to win pretty handily. But it's also expected to be a good TV fight, which is another way of saying it won't be boring, and should have action to spare.

The undercard also features some potentially explosive matchups:

Featherweights, 12 Rounds (WBC Title)
Jhonny Gonzalez (52-7, 45 KO) vs Daniel Ponce De Leon (43-4, 35 KO)

Welterweights, 10 Rounds
Marcos Maidana (31-3, 28 KO) vs Jesus Soto Karass (26-7-3, 17 KO)

Bantamweights, 12 Rounds (WBC Title)
Leo Santa Cruz (20-0-1, 11 KO) vs Eric Morel (46-3, 23 KO)
